Our Treatment Approach
The Pancreas and Biliary Tumor Center at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center brings together a team of experts who specialize in treating biliary cancer. We offer patients the most advanced treatments and clinical trials.
Because biliary cancer is usually diagnosed in the later stages, once symptoms occur, the disease is considered to be advanced and can be challenging to treat. It is important to choose a treatment center with a team that specializes in this kind of cancer and has treated many patients with the disease.
Personalized Treatment Plans
We treat the whole person, not just the disease.
Our highest priority is providing our patients and their loved ones with exceptional medical and supportive care. A team of medical specialists, nurses specializing in biliary cancer, and other support staff (dietitians, integrative therapists, and many others) collaborate in the management of your care.
Your health care team will take the time to connect with you one-on-one, listen, and understand your needs and preferences. We offer the most advanced therapies possible, while also helping you maintain your quality of life during treatment. We encourage you to be actively involved in the decision-making process.
Your team of specialists — gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, palliative care physicians, and dedicated nursing, nutrition and social work staff — works closely together from your initial diagnosis through your entire treatment, ensuring that your care is coordinated.
